Tru-Seal Attic Hatch challenges the conventional attic hatch design. After a couple of years of manufacturing a conventional style attic hatch, it was found that no matter how many improvements were made to the insulation or the foam gasket seal, the conventional style hatch would still fail for the simple fact that it relies on gravity to pull the insulated door tight to the gasket seal to avoid air leakage into the attic causing frost buildup. The conventional style has a half inch space all around the door to allow for the door to be pushed into the attic for access. If this door does not sit perfectly flat on the gasket, household air will be able to leak through the gasket seal and meet with the cold attic air and create frost. There had to be a better way. And in order for the hatch to provide a better seal and insulate that cavity more adequately to eliminate the transfer of air flow to the attic, we had to rethink the way we gain access into the attic. Tru-Seal Attic Hatch is an attic hatch that disrupts the current attic access market to provide a more adequate seal and insulating R-Value to save the home owner energy costs and to reduce the risk of Attic Rain.
Patent Pending Tru-Seal Attic Hatch is a 2 door system. It is fastened on to the ceiling from underneath rather than pushing into the attic for access.
The first door (Seal Door) is installed right after the drywall stage. This allows the attic to be sealed up during the rest of the building process. The second door (Finish Door) is installed right at the end of the finishing stage. This is a decorative door that will cover up any stippling, paint or scratches that the Seal Door sustained during the building process.
By fastening the door from underneath, we are able to use friction fit batt insulation in the cavity which not only eliminates the half inch space that a conventional door has, but also allows us to insulate that cavity to the same R-Value as the rest of the attic.
-Maintain a continuous vapour barrier across the ceiling to prevent air leaking into the attic
- Less bulky than a conventional lid which makes it easier to gain access into the attic as well as blends in more with the ceiling
-Achieve the same R-Value as the rest of the attic (R20-R80)
- Eliminate the space around the conventional attic access by using friction fit batt insulation. This prevents the attic air to meet at the gasket seal where potential leaks exist
